VP OF PRODUCT

With degrees in Graphic Design and Media Communications, Lou is extra sensitive to design and user experience, but doesn’t mind digging into technical details. Tasked with overseeing product growth, Lou keeps his finger on the pulse of technology breakthroughs, pushing hard to innovate software platforms for ease-of-use, scalability, and effectiveness. Even after migrating to beautiful San Luis Obispo a decade ago, Lou still brings the hustle-and-bustle of New York to the office every day. He is a contributor to leading online technology publications, and when he’s not working, enjoys hiking and backpacking through our nation's great parks. Lou was Vice President of Web Services at TechXpress from November 2008 until September 2014, when TechXpress was acquired by SMS Masterminds.
